What is a transfer code and what do I need it for?

A transfer code, also «Auth-Code», is required to safely transfer your domain from one registrar to another.

It serves like a single-use password and should be treated confidential by both involved registrars and the owner of the domain.

A transfer code usually consists of a combination from big and small letters as well as numbers and special characters.

If your domain is registered with Hostpoint, you can request the transfer code directly via the Hostpoint Control Panel. You can find out more about requesting the transfer code in the following article: How do I get a transfer code for my domain?

If you would like to request a transfer code for a domain registered at Hostpoint, you can find the relevant instructions here: Where do I get a transfer code for my domain?.

Please note that a transfer code can only be used to switch between two registrars. If you wish to transfer a domain between two accounts at Hostpoint, a change of ownership must be done.
